Sequence of sperm cell surface differentiation and its relationship to exogenous fluid proteins in the ram epididymis.

Abstract

To study successive surface changes of maturing ram spermatozoa, we determined the 125I-labeling patterns of testicular spermatozoa and of spermatozoa from 10 consecutive regions of the epididymis. Overall, three phases of cell surface transformations are distinguishable: Phase I occurs in the caput epididymidis and it is characterized by a series of rapid… (More)
